Educational, awesome, and just plain fun
- High Falls Gorge is just beckoning you to visit one of the Adirondack's most beautiful natural attractions. Walk the bridges, take a trek through the trails, marvel at the falls all around you, and don't forget a cool drink to finish the day!
- For a taste of history with your hike, check out John Brown Farm State Historic Site — it's the former home of abolitionist John Brown and the property's trails are absolutely gorgeous. Other great, easy hiking options include the Heaven Hill Trails and the Brewster Peninsula Trails. All three spots are just a short drive from downtown!
Dogs are family, too
If your family includes a furry friend, the village of Lake Placid is a great place for dogs and offers many pet-friendly lodging options.
